Presently, correct definition that stands for the outdated time period ‘Third World’, comes from the character of a rustic’s political alignment throughout the Chilly Warfare; when ‘Third World’ was used to outline the non-aligned international locations. Switzerland was one amongst them.
First World: america, United Kingdom and its allies.
Second World: the Soviet Union, China, and their allies.
Third World: impartial and non-aligned international locations.

Dumbed all the way down to,
First World: Wealthy international locations.
Third World: Poor international locations.
